In this Monterey Model course, students will analyze Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to research in depth, gain insight about global governance, and apply best practices to “local” situations in the linguistic and cultural contexts that align with their target language of study. Students will also have the opportunity to identify goals related to their discipline and in-terests, and will do research on a specific challenge and will look toward ways to achieve action-able recommendations.

Students will benefit from the opportunity to learn about the interconnectedness of world chal-lenges and the interdisciplinarity of SDGs and global governance. The classes will be taught sim-ultaneously by professors in English, French, and Spanish. Students will come together from all language cohorts to present their research, recommendations for actions or policy initiatives with-in several plenary sessions over the course of the semester. TI students from the TI practicum will offer simultaneous interpretation of these dynamic, multi-lingual and multi-disciplinary sessions.

Other class requirements: Attend and actively participate to all plenary sessions.
Students will do research and present to the class a topic of their choice. The topic must be relat-ed to the SDGs. Written essays and exams are integral parts of this class.

Required language proficiency: ACTFL Advanced High, Superior
